Blossom Bridal can help you find the perfect wedding outfits for your 2024 'Big Day'

With the winter months behind us, many couples are in the throes of planning their perfect wedding day which may be in the next few months. One of the major decisions to be made is what you will both be wearing on your big day. The choice can be overwhelming but when you have a knowledgeable team of bridal and menswear consultants to call upon, the task can be made a lot easier.

Blossom Bridal which has opened new premises in Alvescott Road, Carterton, is a great place for you to start looking for your perfect outfit. They can also help you with bridesmaid’s outfits and menswear together with all the finishing accessories, including shoes. The shop has moved from Witney to much larger, more accessible premises with an extensive range of stock. Manager Sophie Hemmings, along with her consultants Lizzie, Sophie P, Fiona and Lisa are all on hand to assist you during your bridal or groomswear appointment.

For brides, this year is all about bringing romance back with the use of embellishments, beading, sequins, applique and beautiful lace all combined with exquisite silhouettes. Hollywood glamour has its place too with designs celebrating and accentuating your curves, with delicate decolletage necklines and cinched in waists.

Sleeves in non-traditional styles have a place with this season’s bridal dresses. From draping, off the shoulder as well as removable sleeves, giving you a different look for your reception, all bring a diverse dimension to classic wedding dress styles.

If you have the perfect figure, simplistic sheath dresses create curve skimming silhouettes with form fitting elegance. Some have draped low cut backs or even fashionable sleeves, providing an alternative option to create Hollywood glamour. To add a further touch of sultry sophistication plunging necklines combined with illusion panelling creates a beautiful look full of flirtatious femininity.

Needless to say, the classic bridal gown will still appeal to many brides but expect to see enhancements this year with convertible accessories adding a contemporary twist to a timeless look and enabling you to achieve a range of looks and styles with just one gown.

When deciding what type of dress to choose, remember find a look which compliments both your body type and personality. You need to feel comfortable all through your wedding day and reception and confident too as you walk down the aisle and become the centre of everyone’s attention. Often it will be the fabric you choose and the overall ‘theme’ or look you want for your wedding day that will lead you with your bridal consultant’s help, to selecting the most suitable dress.

When it comes to choosing outfits for your bridesmaids, an interesting trend is choosing monochrome colour schemes. Satin bridesmaid dresses are also very ‘in’ for 2024. There is also an abundance of floral motifs in various colours and sizes being used for both wedding and bridesmaid’s dresses, all adding a truly romantic feel to your bridal party.

As Blossom Bridal also offers menswear, your groom and bridal party can be suited and booted too! This year sees grooms wanting to embrace their individual style, adding sophisticated touches whether that is a textured fabric, coloured ensembles or patterned waistcoats, ties and bow ties. Interesting colours have been introduced moving away from the traditional black and grey morning suits with grey stripped trousers. Now you can find navy morning coats with matching trousers or select a shade of sage or forest green or even a rich burgundy, all complimented with a contrasting double breasted waistcoat.

April sees the introduction of a new range of bridal and menswear at Blossom Bridal so now is the perfect time to give Sophie or one of her colleagues a call to book your appointment. Remember if you are taking family or friends along to give you their opinion, restrict it to one or two people otherwise decisions become more difficult and you may choose something that is not your dream outfit.
